I believe I already have them off. Here is what my config file looks like 
now.  ('vocab' is the culpit share)

        workgroup = ARGOS-SAMBA
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        netbios name = aix433
        posix locking=no
        oplocks = no
        level2 oplocks = no
        comment = Vocabulary
        path = /records/vocab
        writeable = Yes
        browsable = Yes
        posix locking = no
        oplocks = no
        level2 oplocks = no
